It felt like the Stars did very little wrong in the first period of game 3, they opportunities that should have given them the lead but couldn’t convert, then 2 mistakes by Stars top D-men, first Miro looses the puck and it’s 1-0 Tampa Bay, then a missed hit by Lindell sees the Stars down by 2.

In my view, a good day at the office, just not the right result. Too many penalties in the first, the officiating did not seem consistent throughout the game, but throughout the periods yes. Everything called in the first, most calls were made in the second and everything goes in the 3rd, but regardless, the Lightning managed to capitalize on their chances and it gave them an early 2-0 lead.
